Please note the revised performance schedule to that which was originally advertised. Performances now take place 19 Jul - 19 Sep. No performances during the London 2012 Olympic Games (27 Jul - 14 Aug)

In an exhilarating, participatory adventure, you are the sole audience member, a passenger who journeys through a maze of live scenes. You will be catapulted into unimaginable situations before being returned to the outside world, breathless, invigorated and left wanting more.

Artists Kate Bond and Morgan Lloyd originally created You Me Bum Bum Train in 2004 and the piece has been evolving ever since. They won the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award 2010, and the Evening Standard Theatre Award 2010 for 'Outstanding Newcomer'.
